Puppy Info of ClasSea Portuguese Water Dogs (PWDs)

Thank you for your interest in ClasSea Portuguese Water Dogs!

ClasSea is not a breeding kennel.  The dogs are valued members of our household.  

Currently I serve as a committee member to the Chicago PWD Club and a full member of the PWDCA National Club.  February 2011, I fully qualified for recognition status from The AKC as a Breeder of Merit.   ClasSea is also a registered name with the AKC.

Here at ClasSea, parent dogs must have passed all genetic testing for GM-1 Storage, Optigen, CERF/OFA Eye, and an OFA hip exam. JDCM and IC Normal results on at least one of the parents are also required.  We also test other tests which are not required for the breed.  The more information we obtain the better.  Parents must also be structurally correct for the jobs they were originally bred to perform. 

We have a litter occasionally with the expectation of keeping a puppy to further and enhance our breeding program.  We don’t just have puppies to sell.

Temperament is at the top of our list when breeding decisions are made.  Secondly, we look for parents that have strong working desire and are structurally correct to perform the duties.  Our goal is to have each new generation represent an improvement on the last.

I recommend you visit the PWDCA.org site and educate yourself on the breed as much as possible.  There are many great articles worth reading. 

If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us.

Thank you again for your interest in a ClasSea Portuguese Water Dog puppy!

Please fill out questionnaire, print and mail, or scan, and email.  My mailing address and email address are provided on the questionnaire.  I will be in contact  with you after I receive it. Information from this form is used to aid in placing the right puppy with the perfect family or person. This is a very important to me.

Note:  I reserve the right to make decisions where puppies are placed, and reserve the right to refuse placements to any one at any time at my discretion.


We provide permanent microchip identification for all of our adults and puppies at no cost to you.  Your new puppy comes to you already fitted with a tiny harmless microchip that will stay safely in place for life, offering protection from loss, theft or separation due to natural or personal disaster.  The microchip number is unique and belongs only to your puppy.

You and your puppy will be enrolled in a 24 hour pet recovery network in the United States for no additional charge. We handle the entire process! We can even include your veterinarian’s information and an alternate contact of choice.

Shelters, vets, and rescue teams scan for microchips. If ever lost, your puppy can find his way home to you when his number is scanned. Operators are standing by 24 hours a day to help reunite you and your pet.

We are proud to offer you this service as part our Standard of Care because we love all our puppies


I have found a lost pet. I have the microchip number. How do I locate the owner?

FIRST, go to www.PetMicrochipLookup.org and enter the chip number. If the owner has registered, you will be directed to the registry. If not, you will be given the toll free number of the chip maker. NOTE: The alphabet letter O is not used in microchip numbers. It is always the number, 0.
